Recon
« on: February 27, 2014, 01:05:24 PM »
OK, I know Recon has not started yet. But I wanted to get the discussion (wild speculation) going with the comments made on the Myth KS page. What kind of Myth content will be in the Recon KS?

I hope it is add-on stuff, I mean Recon looks great, just not the kind of game I normally play....

Fully compatible with Myth!  pewpew lasers versus Orcneas!
I think Duncan looks like a tiny little girl.

But, seriously, my excitement for this game grows with each passing week.  Like a fetus.

What I'm telling you guys is that I'm pregnant with MERCS' baby.  I hope it's a tailless.

Somewhere I read that the Trickster is part of the MERCS universe. Sounds interesting...

I am so pledging for Recon as soon as it starts...

Yes, they said during the KS that you would be able to use the Trickster in Mercs eventually, so maybe the Myth/Recon crossover has something to do with him. (maybe "crossover" is a bit much, but...)

I don't think I'll be able to back recon, unless I find a way to sell my PS3 for a decent price or something ^^.

Can't wait to hear about it though, and will be putting in $1 just to watch progress. I hope it explodes its way onto the top 10 kickstarter board games geeklist on bgg! Is it supposed to be a module for mercs or is it a totally separate standalone that happens to have interchangeable pieces?

I don't think I'll be backing this one either. Have to scrimp and save at the moment. I hope it would be completely different to Myth though and wouldn't have crossovers.

With the exception of being able to play the Trickster in Recon, I don't see much mixing possible. I don't think Grubbers would last long in Recon...
But I guess we'll be fixed next week.

While Recon doesn't look like my kinda game so far, I'll give the KS a good hard look before I make up my mind.

Unlikely to back as well. Have to start setting money aside for myth2 if I want that.
Curious about the 'myth content'.

I'm in the same boat.  While the concept of Recon sounds interesting, as well as the Myth content, I can't be throwing down hundreds of dollars on different Kickstarters multiple times a year.  If I'm going to commit to any big Kickstarter this year, it'll be the Myth expansion(s).

Agreed. I'm, like most people, still waiting on the vast majority of my pledges to be fulfilled from the Kickstarters I've backed.

I am up in the air about backing but I will throw this piece of speculation in and just walk away: the clockwork race or something similar as a crossover enemy... Maybe sentry turrets and automated defenses in recon will represent the race in myth.
I respect but do not fear the murphy bat.

If they handle Recon as well as they have run Myth, it'll have a good chance of my support. And though, the theme does not interest me as much, I'm keen to see what they will do with it and how the mechanics work. I hope they'll have a ton of gameplay videos ready to go.

I'm really torn. I've been VERY impressed with how Brian and Co. have run the Myth Kickstarter, so I'd be happy to take another spin with them again. That being said, I'm not a huge sci-fi board game fan, Myth promises to scratch my co-op itch, and I'm not wanting to throw down hundreds on another game right now. I really hope that they either keep the entry price with SGs relatively low or they make the "Myth content" available as add-ons. Unfortunately, neither one of those seem very likely to me.

I prefer my sci-fi to be of the ship combat variety.
I think Duncan looks like a tiny little girl.
